Luanne, Thanks for the information! I have seen a typed version of what is considered 1810 census of Mississippi which was basically along the southern part--Gulf area---saw it at the Library.
How long have you been researching your families? I do not believe that all the LDS centers have all the books and/or film available at hand, just as many libraries do not have everything. Many films and other data have to be ordered.

I disagree with you about most University libraries having census available. I know many that do not have them and only have material for studies. I would agree that large cities such as Austin would have such material available. Since you live in Austin, which houses the vital statistics for the state of Texas, you will find several places that have certain records for family research and/or documents. Of course, much is probably for the state of Texas. All State libraries and Archives serves that purpose.
I sometimes think that the smaller libraries that have a special collections room or area are neglected because they lack a great deal of material. But, they also have some very valuable data for some ancestors because they moved to the area and died there. Sometimes the family members left information or book that is not necessarily found any place else. It is a great quest!.
You are fortunate to live in such a large city where there is much available data to be had in various areas. Barbara
